Josephine and Graçian’s Story

Josephine and Graçian are a couple who live in a household of five with some of their children and grandchildren.

The couple used to cook on a three stone fire, making it difficult for Graçian to cook, but now they have a DelAgua stove it is much easier for him to help with the cooking. Graçian and Josephine are happy now that their older grandchildren can now help out with the cooking too.

Because of their age, the couple used to struggle to collect their own firewood, and their income also did not allow them to buy lots of firewood, but the DelAgua stove only uses small pieces of wood, so they are able to collect firewood themselves, saving money and time. 

Josephine wants to spend the extra money on clothes and kitchen necessities.

Josephine said that the stove has significantly improved their lives, and it has alleviated some of their concern about the livelihood of elderly people in rural areas.
